Four in a row: Back to back TCS&D award wins for Gray & Adams

Gray & Adams’ position as the UK’s leading supplier of temperature-controlled semi-trailers and rigid vehicle bodywork has been proven for the fourth year running.

On Tuesday evening (25 June 2019) at the East of England Arena in Peterborough, Gray & Adams won the Innovation Award for the second year running and Refrigerated Trailer of the Year Award for the fourth year in a row at the 2019 Temperature Controlled Storage and Distribution (TCS&D) Awards.

The business has a successful history at the awards, having won the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) of the Year and Refrigerated Trailer of the Year in 2016. Followed by Refrigerated Rigid of the Year and Refrigerated Trailer of the Year in both 2017 and 2018, with the addition of the Innovation Award in 2018.

This year Gray & Adams have won two industry awards, highlighting their on-going commitment to continuous improvement and engineering excellence. Building on last year’s success, the Innovation Award was won for their work on ‘The Pod’ with NewCold Logistics, who also took home the Lifetime Achievement Award for Tom Cassells. Also joining the celebrations, Castell Howell won Livery of the Year and Martin Jones accepted the award with a nod to Gray & Adams’ support in delivering their livery.

As a business, Gray & Adams has enjoyed many other occasions to celebrate in recent years, having reached their 60th anniversary, been included on The Sunday Times Top Track 250 League Table in 2017 and 2018 and having reached a turnover of £150 million in 2017.

The TCS&D Awards recognises companies and individuals who have made a difference in the temperature controlled storage and distribution industry, and Gray & Adams’ continued nomination and success at this event has recognised its achievements in providing best-in-class products and service that customers can trust.

James and Peter Gray, joint Managing Directors of the business, commented:
